Abstract [en]

Analyzing and designing productive group work and effective communication constitute ongoing research interests in mathematics education. In this article we contribute to this research by using and developing a newly introduced analytical approach for examining effective communication within group work in mathematics education. By using data from 12-13 old students playing a dice game as well as data from a group of university students working with a proof by induction, the article shows how the link between visual mediators and technical terms are crucial in students’ attempts to communicate effectively. The critical evaluation of visual mediators and technical terms, and link between them, is useful for researchers interested in analyzing effective communication and designing environments providing opportunities for students to learn mathematics.
